    "Red Clay Halo" Lyrics

    Misty River

    The girls all dance with the boys from the city
    But they don't care to dance with me
    Well it ain't my fault that the fields are muddy
    And the red clay stains my feet

    Well its under my nails and its under my collar
    And it shows on my Sunday clothes
    Though I do my best with soap and water
    That damned old dirt won't go

    But when I pass through the pearly gates
    Will my gown be gold instead

    Or just a red clay robe with red clay wings
    And a red clay halo for my head

    It's mud in the spring and it's dust in the summer
    When it rolls in crimson tide
    Â'Til the trees and leaves and the cows are the color
    Of the dirt on the mountainside

    Now Jordan's banks are red and muddy
    And the rolling water is wide
    But I got no boat, so I'll be good and muddy
    When I get to the other side

    I'll take the red clay robe and the red clay wings
    And the red clay halo for my head
